John 17:3 (NLT)3And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

  • John 5:37-38 (NLT)37And the Father who sent me has testified about me himself. You have never heard his voice or seen him face to face,38and you do not have his message in your hearts, because you do not believe me—the one he sent to you.

Hebrews 1:1 - 3 (NASB)1God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,  2in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.  3And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.

1 Timothy 1:12 - 1712I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service,  13even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief;  14and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus.  15It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all. 16Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life.  17Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
